When I program my scanner can I put in frequencies for two sites or do I have to program a differant system for each site?

You could but you would not know which site you are monitoring and if by chance you had talkgroups from two systems that had the same TG # you would not necessarily get the right group. I would not do it.

Scanner..

I am using the 396xt. If I don't use two sites in the same system how do I do it, I travel between two sites every day. I wish there was somebody that takes free scan files and fixes them to work with the scanner. I am new to configuring these new scanners. The last scanner I had was about 15 years ago.

Systems...

I want to program the Louisiana State Police. They are on the state wide LWIN system. There is a tower in New Orleans (North Simulcast - N.O. Metro), I live about 58 miles from this tower so the tower for that system closest to me is one in Slidell La. But, when I am in New Orleans area I can't receive the Slidell tower so is it ok to program two sites in the same system? I want to listen to Troop B(New Orleans Metro) and Troop L wich is north of the lake.

One other question----In the database the frequencies listed for eash tower are in order of LCN left to right?


Example:


2-001 2-1 North Simulcast - N.O. Metro
765.28125a 765.55625 766.73125 774.13125 774.65625 775.15625 854.61250 858.61250
866.16250 866.21250 866.46250 866.56250 866.68750 866.98750 867.03750 867.36250
867.57500 867.73750 867.80000 868.13750 868.16250 868.27500 868.47500a 868.60000
868.67500 868.75000 868.85000a 868.90000c

yes

Program both sites in the same system, program all talk groups you're interested in into that same system. I'd probably set each site to a different quick key, or maybe have different startup keys for when you're near Slidell and another when you're near New Orleans. I'm not too familiar with the specifics of La. but you should be able to just do the control channels for each site, no need to do all frequencies.
